Indian Institute of Foreign Trade


The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) was established in 1963 as an autonomous body under the Ministry of Commerce & Industry to contribute to the skill building for the external trade sector of India. It has come a long way to successfully develop into a unique institution involved in imparting knowledge through research and training in international business and trade. The Institute was granted “Deemed to be University” status in 2002. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has recognized IIFT as a Grade ‘A’ Institution in 2005 as well as in 2015. Over the years, IIFT has emerged as a national university with a focus on International Business Management and Strategy, and such focus is reflected in all three major activities of the Institute: Research, Training, and Education.
